What is marine biodiversity? [1] Biodiversity is an all-inclusive term to describe the total variation among living organisms of our planet. In its simplest form, biodiversity or biological diversity is therefore 'Life on Earth' and includes marine biodiversity 'Life in the Seas and Oceans.` The marine environment has a very high biodiversity. to manage and conserve biodiversity in marine and coastal ecosystems, MACBIO support sustainable economies and livelihoods of Pacific Island Countries.

Understanding Marine Biodiversity will be of specific interest to marine biologists, ecologists, oceanographers. Marine pollution, in its many forms, alters the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the ocean and coastal areas, negatively impacting the health of biodiversity and ecosystems. The three primary sources of marine pollution stem from direct discharge of effluents and solid waste on land and at sea, runoff from rivers, and.

Marine and Coastal. Wednesday // Marine and Coastal Biodiversity. The wealth of the sea is finite. The oceans occupy more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and 95% of the biosphere. Life in the sea is roughly times older than the genus Homo.

There is broad recognition that the seas face unprecedented human-induced threats from. Life in our seas produces a third of the oxygen that we breathe, offers a valuable source of protein and moderates global climatic change. Some examples of marine and coastal habitats include mangrove forests; coral reefs; sea grass beds; estuaries in coastal areas; hydrothermal vents; and seamounts and soft sediments on the ocean floor a few kilometres below the surface.

Coastal and marine environments can be tremendously biodiverse. Human activities, pollution, land use and development along coastlines, however, can put stress on these environments that may limit the rates of growth and reproduction of coastal flora and fauna.

This can in turn reduce overall biodiversity. Marine and coastal ecosystems also play an important role in photosynthesis and productivity. The present overview summarizes the current status of taxonomic knowledge of the marine and coastal biodiversity of India.
